Google Calendar integrates several other Google apps on the web. One is Google Maps, which is in the sidebar and opens when you select an address. However, if you don’t like this feature, you can turn it off.
When you click an address in an event, a preview of the location opens in the right sidebar. To open the location on the Google Maps website, click Open in Maps. This is an additional step that some people want to avoid.
Go to the Google Calendar website in a web browser and find an event with a location.
Clicking the link will open the sidebar with a Google Maps preview of the location. Click “Open in Maps” to view the location on the Google Maps website.
To turn this off, all you have to do is hide the sidebar. Close everything that’s open in the sidebar so that only the app shortcuts can be seen.
Then click the arrow (>) in the lower right to hide the sidebar.
If you click on an address now, you will be taken directly to Google Maps.
